$60,000 Scholarship Challenge

Change a Life - Change the World

Dickinson's Campaign for Scholarships seeks to raise enough money to make sure that every Dickinson student who needs a scholarship gets a scholarship.

Sam Rose ’58, one of Dickinson's biggest scholarship donors, has recently come forward to launch the $10 Million Change a Life Challenge. Sam will match the next $10 million given toward scholarships, helping us successfully complete this historic campaign.

Gifts to ANY scholarship at Dickinson qualify for Sam's Change a Life Challenge, which means that your gift in support of today's $60,000 Scholarship Challenge will automatically be doubled.

Donations are applied to...

Your gift to general scholarships will provide unrestricted scholarship and financial aid to Dickinson students who have the need. You can also support specific scholarship initiatives by directing your support to any of the following, among many others:

  • General Scholarships
  • Class of 1963 Scholarship
  • Class of 1967 Scholarship
  • Class of 1989 Scholarship
  • Raven's Claw Scholarship
  • Truman Bullard Scholarship for Music
  • Wheel & Chain Leadership Award

To direct your gift to a specific scholarship, choose "Your Choice (Other)" as your giving destination and then you will be given the opportunity to type in the Scholarship Name.

Why are donations necessary?

The goal is to make sure that we provide sufficient aid to meet the full demonstrated need for every student we admit—to make sure financial constraints never prevent potential Dickinsonians from experiencing this life-changing, and world-changing, education. By investing in this effort, you will change a student’s life, you will help provide this transformational experience to someone who couldn’t afford it without your help. But you’ll also change the world, because Dickinson graduates don’t keep the benefits of this education to themselves. They become the doctors and scientists fighting disease; the entrepreneurs and business leaders solving problems and creating jobs; the nonprofit leaders, lawyers—and even the judges—creating a more just and equitable world; the artists, teachers and performers who move us, inspire us and help us understand the world. They join all the Dickinsonians out there making a difference every day.
